Note: This is the official release to Newgrounds of the Game stolen a few days ago by someone pretending to be me :( , if you've already played it, please vote how you liked it, though you should now play it with it's proper aspect ratio, it's much better :D

The idea behind this game was to push how large of a single Movieclip I could make each level, and in the process pay tribute to my absolute favourite game on the PS2, Shadow of the Colossus, which hopefully will be seeing an HD re-release on PS3 soon!

Play as a mysterious Pale Man of the North in a quest to rid the Kingdom of a most unusual plague, and in the process win the throne to the empire!

I hope you enjoy this little cinematic style game, I've really tried to squeeze the atmosphere in. Featuring music from Duncan Fenn of The Red Swan Hotel,which you should defintely check out in the link to the side and the as usual brilliant http://www.Incompetch.com

I wanna punch that stupid king!

but anyways, I liked this, it is a good tribute imo, kinda wish the golem were animated some, which was one of the things I liked about shadow so much they were practically alive and a constant threat if you ignored them too much, this one was a bit too easy, fun but easy, I liked guessing what the second one was, the third though eluded me til the end, flying seahorse, did not expect that. But anyways, keep up the good work!

Good game!

Nice. Shadow of the Colossus is one of my favorite games too. Nice to see a tribute. Could have used a bit more polish but still a fun game.

got repetitive fast

I find this game not to be enjoyalbe after about 5 minutes. The art is nice and the music just loops over and over and over...mute ftw.

Great game...

2 stars off for the ending. Pretty anti-climatic for the epic scale of work the character just did. Otherwise a good game.

My take:

In my opinion, the story in this was a bit lacking. It felt a bit too cliche and the ending was a bit too close to Shadow of the Colossus. Yes I know this is a tribute, but I the ending honestly did not do it for me.
As far as game play goes, this game is a solid A. Fantastic adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus. It was very fun to play and I found the third monster quite difficult. However, I do have to agree with others that the jumping is a bit buggy. But, besides that the gameplay was very enjoyable.
The music for the menu, first, and third monster were fantastic, but the music for the cut scenes did not fit. Also, the music for the 2nd monster reminded me of Pokemon, or even Runescape for that matter. It just didn't fit compared to the rest of the tunes.
Anyway, despite the obvious jumping flaws this was a solid and fun game. A bit quick I might add, but fun none the less.
8/10
5/5
